Wild and Wacky, Weird and Wonderful

Today’s post is brought to you by the letter W and the number phi.

 

I purchased a bunch of filament from a Canadian supplier (who obviously got it from the Mysterious Orient), and while it was sold as ABS, it isn’t like any ABS I’ve ever seen.  It melts too low, it smells different (less offensive, but makes me wonder what I can’t smell that might be in there), and it’s waaaay less flexible. That being said, it bridges like a dream and my extruder can run at least 10 degrees cooler, so it is in some ways a superior product.

It is however not what I was expecting.  While I cannot PROVE it isn’t ABS without a mass spectrometer, I am REALLY tempted to seek out Mr Mass Spec.  

 

We shall see.
